About Artist:
Mabel King was one of the Ngarinyin elders whose life encompassed the great 50 year journey that saw the traditional people of West Kimberley move as a gorup to ultimately settle at Mowanjum community. Her great knowledge of Ngarinyin stories and custom fed into her life as a painter, which she expressed in bold and naive works that tell the story of her culture. This Exhibition presents the Estate paintings of the artist. The Exhibition is presented in association with the Mowanjum Art and Culture Centre.
